Nobby Stiles, a key member of England’s World Cup-winning side in 1966, is battling against Alzheimer’s Disease.
In a plea for privacy his family revealed that Stiles, 73, was diagnosed with the illness three years ago and told the Manchester Evening News they have been plagued by reporters door-stepping their home.
Wife Kay said: ‘I know Nobby is loved but it is hard to understand the level of interest and we just want some peace.

‘We hope people will understand and allow us privacy.’
Stiles, who also played for Middlesbrough, suffered a minor stroke in 2010 and was diagnosed with prostate cancer two years ago.
He won the 1966 World Cup with England and the 1968 European Cup with his beloved United.
Born in the working class Manchester suburb of Collyhurst, Stiles was a member of the Busby Babes and made his debut for the club 1960.
He made close to 400 appearances for United, winning two First Division titles and an FA Cup.
Stiles’s victory jig across the Wembley turf in ’66 is one of the great moments in the history of English football.
